Trinity UMC of Germantown celebrated its 150th anniversary on Sept. 25, 2016.   Trinity marked this milestone by completing 150 days of prayer for Germantown, completing more than 1,500 hours of community service, and collecting more than 1,500 pounds of food for Germantown HELP

Many present and former congregants as well as District Superintendent J.W. Park, former Trinity pastors, the Revs. Ann Yarbrough, Jim Miller, Mamie Williams, and the leader of Trinity’s Korean Ministry, the Rev. Keystone Lee, attended the celebration. During the celebration, Pastor Bonnie Scott gave thanks for the blessings of the past 150 years and said she looks forward to building on that legacy.

Recognizing the vital role local churches serve in the community, Trinity UMC has embarked on a two-year capital campaign, called “It’s Time.” The campaign has three objectives: 1) to dedicate 10 percent of all funds raised to mission work; 2) to invest in renewal of the church building to enable it to serve for the next 25 years; and 3) to cut the church debt in half and shorten the payoff period by seven years.  The campaign is off to a good start and has already funded a mission trip by 11 youth and five adults to rehabilitate homes of less fortunate people in Western Maryland.
